William H. White (1788-1873) - Dinwiddle Co, VA and Stoddard Co, MO

I'm looking for information about William H. White who was born January 29, 1788 in Dinwiddie County, Virginia. He was married to Mary C. Williamson on December 26, 1813 in Saprta, White County, Tennessee. He died August 23, 1873 in Stoddard County, Missouri and is buried in the White Cemetery.

Mary C. Williamson was born December 13, 1790 in Halifax County, Virginia. She died September 29, 1879 in Stoddard County, Missouri and is also buried in the White Cemetery.

Their children are:
1. Elizabeth Ann White
2. Captain William White
3. Arch White
4. George White
5. Mary White

Source: pp. 1059, 1960 & 1961 of Goodspeed's ____ History of Southeast Missouri:

"...They were married in Halifax County, Va., and moved to Davidson County, Tenn., where they resided until 1832, when they moved to Obion County, West Tennessee, and lived there until 1858. They then moved to Dunklin County, Mo., and from there, in 1867, to Stoddard County, where they passed the remainder of their days. Mr. White began as a farmer, and followed this occupation all his life, but also devoted his time for sixty-five years to his ministerial duties, being a minister in the Methodist Church. He was a great revivalist as long as he was able to carry on a meeting... Mr. White was a Whig before the war, and afterward a Republican..."

My information lists William's father as William White, born in Virginia. Does anyone have further information about this family?
